I don’t know if it is normal for couples to have fights over the remote control, because my wife and I never fight over the remote and my parents never fought over the remote when I was growing up either. My dad has been the remote commander for as long as I can remember and that’s how my relationship with Casey works as well. What that means is that Casey has to deal with a lot of TV surfing, and as a result she gets to watch a lot of the same movies over and over and over again.
Casey and I have been together long enough that she sees the movies coming too as I scroll through the TV guide. She knows that if certain movies show up on that guide that I’m going to change the channel from whatever I’m watching and I’m going to watch that movie no matter how many times I watched that movie in the past. She also knows I get more excited about some movies than others.
Here is my list of the top 12 movies on TV that I watch every time they show up on my channel guide:
